He admits: ''It is pushing me to my limit. I put a lot of pressure on myself in these sort of situations because when you're out there trying to prove yourself all over again, it is just tough.

Kerry Katona wants Loose Women hosting gig

A former pop group singer wowed the judges with his performance on 'The Voice' on Saturday night (30.01.16). Kevin Simm found fame as one fifth of Liberty X, who had hits with tracks such as 'Just A Little'. Following the group being dropped by their label, Kevin signed a solo record deal but that also flopped - causing a big knock in confidence. Acknowledging that 'The Voice' was one of his last chances, Kevin said before his performance: ''I've had nightmares about not having any turns!'' But he certainly needn't have worried about that.

Boyzone's Shane Lynch will join B*Witched for a song during the Big Reunion Christmas tour.

Shane - who is the brother of band members Edele and Keavy - will appear on a screen behind the group, while they sing The Pogues hit 'Fairytale of New York'.

Speaking to The Sun, Edele said: "We're doing 'Fairytale of New York', which is the greatest Christmas song ever.

"It's great, it sounds great. He's on the screen and he's giving it all his Shane-ness."

She continued: "It will be good as well, because he's from the '90s, too. So I think the audience are going to love it.

"They'll go, 'Wow we get an extra '90s star on stage'."

Michelle Collins wants to do Strictly Come Dancing

Michelle Heaton preferred working with Liberty X on 'The Big Reunion' compared to when they started in the 2000s. The 34-year-old singer was reunited with former bandmates Tony Lundon, Kevin Simm, Jessica Taylor and Kelli Young earlier this year for the ITV2 series, which documented their comeback and featured them playing their greatest hits on a show tour, and the brunette beauty loved not having to worry about where their music would chart. She said: ''Getting back together with Liberty X has been awesome. I had such a great time on the tour in May. ''It was even better this

'Big Reunion' stars return to the stage at Hammersmith Apollo - pictures

Atomic Kitten, Liberty X, Blue and the rest of the Big Reunion lineup made their long-awaited return to the stage at a special concert in London last night (February 26).

Along with 5ive, B*Witched, 911 and The Honeyz, the '90s and early '00s pop favourites performed their classic tunes in front of a crowd of thousands at the Hammersmith Apollo.

Michelle Heaton, Jessica Taylor and Kelli Young made perhaps the most eye-catching appearance of the night along with their Liberty X bandmates Kevin Simm and Tony Lundon when they sung 'Just A Little', slipping back into the skintight black Pvc catsuits they first donned 11 years ago with ease.

The performance was particularly poignant for Heaton, who underwent a double mastectomy last November after being told she has a significant chance of developing cancer.

She is also scheduled to undergo major heart surgery that will determine whether she needs a pacemaker.

"The Big Reunion follows their every step, as their worlds are turned upside down after years away from the spotlight," promoters Live Nation said of the show.

"For some it's the chance to relive their dream, for others it may open old wounds as they prepare to face demons they thought they had buried forever."

They added: "Each band will have just two weeks of intense rehearsals before they step back onto the stage to perform once again in front of thousands of fans at London's Hammersmith Apollo, tickets for which sold out almost as soon as they went on sale.
